Woodford Dolmen Hotel, Carlow
Excellent hotel to stay
Opeyemi, us3 night family trip
Woodford Dolmen Hotel, Carlow
Needs to be completely updated
Room and hotel need to be updated. Room was a little musty and carpet was ripped in the room and hallways. Walls need to be painted. WIFI did not work very well. Coffee pot was badly stained. On check out, I told the clerk my room was already charged to my card by, but she did not believe me and insisted I pay again. Now I need to have my credit card company work out the overcharge. Basically, I was called a liar which is quite unprofessional on their part. I will be returning to Ireland, but will not be staying again at this hotel. On the up side, there was a very nice young women in the restaurant who was quite helpful.

Nice cozy hotel, close to town.
We only stayed one night but would stay definitely stay again. It was easy to get to and close to town. Also, only a little over an hour from Dublin. We got there a little before 4:00pm and our room was not ready but the girl at the desk was extremely nice about it and asked us to wait a few minutes. We were in no hurry and decided to have lunch at the restaurant. The food was ok, I did not find it special but it was not bad overall. It cost us about 10.50 euro per plate. Breakfast was included and it was good as was the service. The room was cozy and very clean and had a very nice view of the garden, which I found very pretty and charming. If the weather is good, it is nice to take a walk. The hotel is also about 1hr away from Kilkenny, which was were we headed the next day and part of the reason we chose it. I would definitely recommend it!

Our room 137 was awful, two of the beds the mattresses must have been years old and so uncomfortable and the knocking from the plumbing kept me and my partner up most of the 2 nights we were there it was so loud. the food from the bistro was very average for the price...otherwise the staff where friendly and helpful and room was clean. unfortunately I wouldn't stay here again....
